Yes indeed, the time has arrived for the first Crusader challenge, and you can read all about it here.
Below is my entry for the challenge, a poem I like to call...
Maybe I was a rabbit once
Or something like a duck
I hopped through blades of glass
Fuliguline in my way
But this time I’m a librarian
And I’m not shy at all—no way!
Yet with words I tend to bloviate
Beyond what I can explain
Yes, indeed, you’ll probably find
My word counts are too high
But I’m the more self-confident type
The voices won’t turn me aside
P.S. I rescue baby rats from my cats
And I clear my driveway of snails
I talk to the ants before I grab the spray
And hope they’ll run away
Sometimes I chew on my nails till they break
And my sentences might stretch very far away...............................
It’s time to finish this poem
And put it on my blog
And then I’m going out into the stacks
And putting my iPod on.
I have revealed something about myself in this poem that isn’t strictly true - can you guess what it is?This was a lot of fun to write. I have written a lot of poetry in my time, but lately it's been mostly for songs, and it's been a while since I wrote a silly poem. :D Anyway...look forward to reading others' entries for this challenge! :) And I have yet to follow everyone. *sags wearily*
